I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Collaborative environment. On the operations side, the lab works hard to try to stay up to date with industry, in spite of being a UC/DOE run entity. In terms of careers, successful individuals find their value and create worth through looking beyond immediate work.

Cons

Some of the science side of the lab has little or no value for operations and little interest in developing a peer relationship. Salary.

    I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool work, big budgets. The lab has the potential to get the most out of graduate student researchers (its better when the division head is also a professor).

    Cons

    No clear vision for work, no freedom to find own way. Instead of allowing grad students to explore out of the way ideas, they are treated as cheap labor.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication
